That is not exactly true. My mother-in-law LOVES the morning after Thanksgiving. She is up and at 'em at 4 a.m. with Manhiem Steamroller blasting out of her car on her way to THE ULTIMATE DAY OF SHOPPING.
A few years ago she was tackled by a lady in Wal-Mart going after a $39 DVD player. Serious shopping this is.
She spends a great majority of Thanksgiving Day perusing the sale papers and planning her attack, I mean, schedule. She will know exactly how many whoozits each store is receiving and what time they open. Her instinct is so keen that she will even know what time to be in line for each store.
Not only have I never been with her, I've never been invited. I think I might throw off her mojo or something. THE ULTIMATE DAY OF SHOPPING cannot be hampered by disproportionate mojo.
So...she will buy a few presents this weekend, but I know she's really holding out for THE ULTIMATE DAY OF SHOPPING.
I, on the other hand, will be physically ill if I cannot scratch 99% of the names off my list after this jaunt. The Palace has a much more enjoyable holiday season if the month of December is not about acquiring hard-to-find gifts. I know some of you thrive on being in the mall in the midst of such folly. I do not.
I will try to post updates of our successes and failures, however, my poor little hands may be too weary from hauling all the packages.
Wish me luck.
